Details Matter Journal
Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry
This official journal for microscopy in dentistry will serve the dental profession and the public by being a source of scientific, evidence-based information and an advocate on the advantages of the stereomicroscope and associated techniques in microdentistry. The Journal will publish peer-reviewed articles related to microscopy and ergonomics in all aspects of treatment and be published twice in 2020 with a 20,000-print run.
The Journal invites industry participation for providing valuable educational content, related to microscopes, enhancement for the scope, and ergonomics. It will work to educate non-microscope users and dispel the myths that dissuade dentists from adopting the microscope and similar technologies that support enhanced vision and ergonomics. Through this peer reviewed scientific publication, AMED seeks to enhance the respect and prestige for microscopic dentistry.
The journal will launch in August 2020 and be received by all members of AMED, but also distributed widely at dental meetings and be available for digital distribution on www.microscopedentistry.com.
Our Contributors and Reviewers will represent some of the foremost microscope dentists in the country. Journal Editor is Claudia C Cotca, DDS, MPH
